About This Project
When we were approached by AO with a brief to create them a website for the new recycling operation company AO Collects, we were extremely excited by the task at hand and pleased to have been chosen to work with such a prominent business.
The new website offers customers the capability to book in old ammonia fridges to be collected and recycled at their state of the art facility in Telford, the UK’s biggest fridge recycling plant, based right here in Shropshire. The need for a premium website was obvious, and vital.
The team here at Verve worked closely with AO Collects to achieve a bespoke Magento 2 website with complex specifications. The project was innovative and a first of its kind created here at Verve. We ensured effective communication with the team at AO by regular project updates and flexible communication channels answering any queries that they had quickly and efficiently helping to build a positive working relationship that was key to the seamless process of the project.
The company wanted a Magento 2 website and Verve’s team of developers were more than happy to oblige to this very bespoke build request. Magento 2 offers AO Collects the possibility of implementing all the functionality required to enable users to arrange collection for a number of items such as ovens, dishwashers, freezers and tumble dryers.
Our design team worked tirelessly in line with the AO Brand Guidelines but also included our own subtle style to create a visually pleasing website that offered a great user experience and clearly complied with the AO guidelines. The user journey and navigation of the website was extremely important to make it as clear, concise and easy as possible for everyone landing on the site to quickly achieve their objectives and to check out with obstacles.
The site is directed towards B2B, councils as well as consumers. We have produced functionality for integrating in to AOs own fulfilment service. Users can select the amount of units they want to recycle, arrange a collection and pick a date that is suitable for them making it simple and manageable to recycle ammonia fridges and other appliances. They can also create an account via the website making it simple to arrange regular collections. The website is responsive and accessible from all devices.
AO Collects have been extremely happy with the standard of work we have produced as a team here at Verve and we are now delighted to already be working with them on the other upcoming phases of the project. So stay tuned to Verve for exciting new updates on our working journey with AO Collects!

Working with the team at Verve on such a bespoke project has been an all round fantastic experience. Throughout the entire process the team were attentive and hard-working, answering any queries or questions that we had along the way and putting us at total ease. Which was vital as this was such a huge, and very important, project for us. We expected a great deal and Verve delivered every step of the way.
We worked closely with Sarai and Mark, as well as the team of skilled web developers and designers, who were all extremely hard-working individuals helping to produce an exceptional standard of work, overcoming any obstacles along the way.
Communication was key to this project and I am pleased to say that everyone at Verve responded to us professionally and quickly going out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and completely happy with the work. The quality of service really was impeccable.
We are looking forward to continuing to work with Verve on the next stage of the project and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other businesses embarking on such an important venture.
